My Effective Investing Strategy on eToro

As mentioned from my previous article, How to Invest Facebook, Google, Apple Stocks in the Philippines,” I started my global portfolio on eToro just recently and I’m happy to see great results.

Many were excited and were asking what’s my strategy and how can they copy me. Chillax, I am sharing the answers here.

This is for those who are interested to copy my portfolio on eToro. eToro is founded in Europe and is now the leading social trading platform in the world.

You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work, and whether you can afford to take the high risk of losing your money. This article should not be considered as a professional advice.

Before You Invest

I always recommend investing only less than 10% of your money on eToro because investing and trading is risky. The global market is always volatile although you can make money from if you have an effective strategy to achieve your goal.

My Effective Investing Strategy on eToro

It is a medium-long term investing of my own selected companies. I focus on buying positions but I also short sell whenever it’s reasonable. I invest my funds to the following asset allocation:

  • Consistent Companies
  • The Big Ones
  • Tech Giants
  • Food Sector
  • Energy and Aerospace
  • Worth Trading
  • Top Performing ETF

Consistent Companies

These companies are always consistent in terms of earnings and performance. I want to have more holdings of these firms because I find them less volatile compared to other stocks. Thus, I try to have regular investments of these stocks. Right now, these stocks include Mastercard and Visa.

The Big Ones

The Big Ones are well established companies that are less risky to fall down. In my portfolio, they include Microsoft and Amazon. I am confident with these companies and their future growth. To learn more, check out the Top 5 Reasons Why Invest Microsoft Stocks.

Tech Giants

My tech giant stocks include Apple and Google. I use their services everyday so why not have holdings with them as well. I see a lot of potential with these companies that continue to acquire other tech companies.

Food Sector

Food is king. I want to have a small portion of my portfolio with this sector. Companies like Starbucks, Mc Donald’s and Chipotle are attractive right now. I will add positions with any of these companies when the time is right.

Energy and Aerospace

These companies are earth-friendly and have strong potential. In addition, their performances are getting better and better. I like to invest on Tesla, Northrop Grumman, and NextEra Energy. Airplane duopoly of the world include Airbus and Boeing.

Worth Trading

I use this portion for fair-to-buy stocks that are currently undervalued or those stocks that I can’t miss buying during dips, correction, IPO, or reasonable circumstances. In my list right now are BYD, Alibaba, and London Stock Exchange Group.

Top Performing ETF

QQQ and ARK Invest ETF are one of the best performing ETFs in the world. I add some positions of these ETF when there are market corrections or when opportunities arise.

Important Things to Consider:

The chosen stocks and fund allocation changes over time. If you copied me on eToro, your investment will automatically be distributed proportionally following my latest portfolio allocation.

Minimum fund to copy me is $300. Great things start from small beginnings that’s why I want to welcome everyone, including beginners with small capital to invest with me.

Recommended Settings for New Copiers:

My portfolio has grown but I still want to remain open for those who want to start small. To effectively achieve gains, you may set up your Copy Fund as follows:

  • Copy Open Trades if your initial fund is $300
  • Copy Open Trades if your initial fund is $1,000 or more

I encourage investors to add funds every month to grow your capital. However, this is not required for my copiers, but only OPTIONAL. You still have the choice to add funds whenever you like.

TIME is the Essence

It is essential to invest time to let the companies grow and gain profit. Economic factors and trends can affect the stock price movements. Such factors can slow down growth or they can speed it up. In an instant, anything can happen. For that, I always share the following tips on investing.

Tips on Investing:

  • Be patient.
  • Hit your target.
  • Do not be greedy.
  • Forget your emotions.
  • Invest only what you’re comfortable to lose.

Portfolio Management and Re-balancing

I am careful about selecting companies to invest my money. I make sure the companies have proven track records, excellent CEOs, and strong balance sheets.

I use a special financial software when screening these companies. The same is true with my portfolio analysis and forecasts. I will share these forecasts and analysis occasionally with my copiers.

A proven and time-tested effective technique I use is Dollar-Cost-Averaging wherein we add funds and invest periodically. It is a very effective strategy to add funds every month or every time NASDAQ100 and the SPX500 are down. I take these opportunities to buy positions.

To lock in gains constantly is another method I practice. It is a time when we hit the target of a certain stock. We use the profit to re-invest in another worthy company to give us another profit.

    • Anybody you copy doesn’t have access to your account or money. Your money stays on your equity. If someone you copy dies, stop the copy and copy someone else.

  1. Hi Fehl what option do the investors have if etoro goes burst/ bankrupt since etoro has not yet registered in the Philippines

    • eToro accounts are insured up to €1 million. That means, if eToro goes bankrupt, you’ll get all the funds on your equity of up to 1 million

  2. Hello mam. Ask ko lang nag open na ako ng etoro accounts. pero ung sa personal profile ayaw tanggapin ang philippine address kailangan daw sa US address. pano po un?

  3. Hi Ms. Fehl, I am a silent reader of this site for years and I can say that this is where I started my investing journey. I can also say that most of my investing decision comes from here. They are so many things I wanted to say actually (first time to comment)…

    May I know your thoughts what made you say that you will be pulling out your BTC positions permanently? Does BTC is of no good at all?

    • Hi, Tom 🙂 Thank you for saying that. Regarding BTC, I closed my BTC positions on eToro not because I don’t want to invest in crypto anymore but because I’m now a PI and my copiers are starting to increase. As an official PI, I have a responsibility to maintain low risk and do all the duties to be a responsible fund manager. As you know, cryptos are very volatile and risky. My BTC are retained from another platform outside eToro.

  4. Hello Ms. Fehl, just want to know how to lock-in profits in eToro with the Real Portfolio? I still having some time learning with my Virtual Portfolio.

    • Hi Jeff 🙂 There are 3 ways to do that:

      1. Set your TP (it will close the position automatically)
      2. Set your SL (it will close the position automatically)
      3. Close it manually

  5. Hi fehl, were on at eToro! jdnbmjr my usern. Ask ko lng, can I just pick the stocks I wanted to copy? and if can, how? But dont get me wrong I believe in your strategy hence copied you. Just wanna if I can do that. More power to u!

    • Hi 🙂 Copy trading on eToro have 2 options: Copy Open Trades and Copy New Trades. If you copy open trades, you will copy everything. While copy new trades option will let you copy only the new trades or upcoming trades.

  6. I’m already in etoro. My username is EJoanB. How can I copy you there? I actually followed your link. I didn’t add money yet, just to make sure.
